Default Blocking specific users from texts..

Please Login to Remove!

Is it possible to block a specific person from sending texts? I don't want to turn my phone off but someone keeps sending me just way too many texts and I was wondering if there's some sore of "ignore" option. Thanks in advance...

you could set up a rule/exception that would ignore that person (no ringing/buzzing), but you would still receive the message.

Is it someone you know, or a service like MSN that is sending you alerts?

Someone I know but don't want to be rude and tell them to stop...lol. Is there somehow a way to make their phone show as if the message never made it? I guess somehow block their read receipts?

I have not found anything.

There are some programs that have auto-reply, and other stuff. But nothing that describes this. Might have to actually have to do it the old fashioned way and have a conversation with the person

I think your service provider can do that for you.
